    Hey!
    I think it is a interesting challenge. I just selected some hardware from different reseller. The price is in €!

    CPU: AMD A10-5800K Black Edition 99,99 €
    Mainboard: ASRock FM2A55M-VG3 41,48 €
    RAM: Corsair ValueSelect DIMM Kit 8GB 50,92 €
    GPU: Palit GeForce GTX 660 155,50 €
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 44,61 €
    ODD: LiteOn iHOS104 33,94 €
    PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX500 47,89 €
    Case: Cooler Master Elite 342 24,93 €

    Total: 499,06 €

    Note: Shipping and assembling is not included in the total price!

    This would be my configuration for the challenge. There are some parts I only would take because of the challenge condition.

    Why is everyone forgetting that you need a $100+ OS before you can start gaming? I mean, it really is part of the cost of building a computer. So I believe the real goal should be to build a gaming comp WITH an OS for the price of a console. They come with OS's too. And the only reason the XBO is $100 more is because it comes with a camera. So the real goal should be to create a usable gaming pc with an OS for $400.

    Not too shabby, w/blur ray player to boot.

    All Priced on Newegg:

    Case: RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WBP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - 39.99 ( 49.99 - 10.00 w/promo code SUMMRPRO10)
    Power Supply: 500W Power Supply (inc with case) - 0.00
    Motherboard: BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS - 79.99
    Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory (inc with MB) - 0.00
    Processor: AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - 99.99
    Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - 59.99
    GPU: ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - 199.99
    Blu-Ray ROM: LG Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal 12X Blu-ray Combo Drive - 39.99 (49.99 - 10.00 w/promo code STRWK252)

    I'll grant that the motherboard wouldn't be my first choice, obviously, but when combined with the 8gb free memory at the moment... hard to pass up.

    With Free SuperEgg Saver shipping, total comes to $519.94. Add to that the 20 dollar mail-in-rebate for the Asus Radeon HD7850 and your total comes down to 499.94.

    There you go Nick. More and more titles all the time. Not ideal for everyone, but usable by a large population of the tech-savvy gaming community.

    This is the best I could do. Not the greatest PC, but it would get the job done. I would like to note that PC gamers are NOTHING like console games. Any gamer willing to drop $1,000 on a graphics card is nothing like a gamer who complains about a $500 console being over priced.

    We live for gaming with everything turned up on three screens @ no less than 60fps

    The power supply that comes with the case doesn't have a 6 pin pci-e connector, but it does have 3 molex connectors to allow the use of molex to 6 pin pci-e power adapters.

    After making adjustments to pricing for mass wholesale buying (I must deal in RealVille, retail.) and the fact that @ un wholesale buying
    and that I am not making my money on games, therefore willing to take a loss, even @ wholesale.
    I found it hard to accept failure.
    In order to offer a comparable unit, that will Smoke either 'console' by the way, I found I had the added advantage of 'expand-ability'.
    There for if the above factors were considered I believe that the below unit would indeed come in @ the $500 range.
    Apex SuperCase $29.99 [I love this case, stow and go .. my V won't fit. drat.]
    AMD A10-6800K $149.99
    Asus (No ROG available) F2A85-M Pro $109.99
    Asus DVD/BluRay $56.99
    CoolerMaster HeatSink $39.99
    Corsair 600W PSU $69.99
    Corsair DominatorGT 8gb 2133 $134.99 [Come on- U know I don't use Noth'n else.]
    Samsung SSD 128gb $134.99 (There are probably better @ better deals.idk)
    Seagate 1TB 7200rmp HD $69.99

    Grand Total $796.91 [all prices and hardware from NewEgg]

    Add a 8000 GPU (when they come out) and 8 more GB or DomGT ... yum, Make my day !!!
    The console never did and never will hold a candle to a PC .. only when they give them
    away and we pay retail .. then .. and only then ... hahahhaa .... Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!! .c.
